Celebration&Distraction of Love


Something is burning
and i look cautiously
and If is on me?
so distracted!
my box of match intact
subtle, under my skin
burning, see, burning!
Oh!

Something was cut

and blood flows
by the act of the knife sharpened
for my lack of attention

not in the same place

where my thoughts are
never the ideal stage to act
always destined for a ghost absence

You&So

I Decided Celebrate!

and drink all sensations at once
the cut, the blood, the burn

and unwillingly accepting myself
a love so long felt, wanted
one relief for my distraction

    Thirst of love
    Fills heart with blood
    And burst heart
    With burning desire

    Distrusts mind
    with different thoughts
    And accept love
    With sense of reality (Report) Reply

    Could be a deffinition of love,
    one burns in heart when in love,
    one is cut by affection for another,
    finally one's heart bleeds when cut with love (Report) Reply

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
